Menemerus is a genus of spiders in the family Salticidae, the jumping spiders. They are found worldwide in warmer climates.[1]

Spiders of this genus are 4 to 10 millimeters long, flattened in shape, and very hairy, usually with brown and grayish hairs. Most species have white edges on the thorax. The abdomen is often oval, or sometimes elongated or rounded.[1]
